To the Grand Lodge of North Carolina : 

Another Masonic year has rolled around and you hare again been permitted to 
meet in Grand Lodge to 'deliberate upon such matters as maj be submitted for year 
eonsideratian and fisal action. 

I hare nothi«g of msch importance to communicate to vour body. 

I sant three copies of the proceedings of oar last communication \o those subordi- 
nate Lodges which I beliered to be it work, and also blank returns, which I hop* 
taey havo received indue time. 

One copy each of our proceedings has been sect to the Grand Lodges of the 
Southern Confederacy, with Maine and Maryland, and I hare received from the 
following Grand Lodges one copy of their proceeding : Alabama, Georgia, Louis- 
iana, Maine, Maryland— 1863 and 1864,— and Yirgiaia, which will, I presume, a* 
submitted to a committee for examination. 

Up to this couimmnication I hare received from the subcrdiaate Lodges thesnia 
of $2,134,25 for their ancual stipends, which amount 1 hare paid to the Grand 
Treasurer, and for which he has given his receipt. 
Respectfully submitted. 

W- T. BAIX, Grand Sec'y. 

The Committee on Charters and Dispensations made th« 
following report, which was read and adopted : 

y« the Moit Worshipful Grand Lodge of N»rth Carolina : 

The committee on Character and Dispensations beg leave to report that th«y 
hare examined the by-laws, records, <tc, of the following Lodges : 

W- G. Hill Lodgs. — We find the by-law? of this Lodge in strict accordance with 
tho laws of your Grand Body, and its boots kept in so neat and business-liko a m»i- 
ser as to reflect much honor on its officers. Its woik is heartily apj-roved, and wo 
eheeriully recommend they be granted a Charter. 

We say the same of Jefferson Lodge, and also recommend a Charter. 

Stokesbury Lodge we find met so perfect. We recetnmend its by-laws Vie adopt- 
ed as amended by the Committee. We find also a fault in their minutes which we 
fear too many Lodges are now and have been practicing to too great an extent — 
the making of cases ot emergency — and we know of no way te obviate this growing 
e-vil unless yeur body will repeal all laws on its statutes granting such power to fuo- 
Lodges. 

But believing their Intentions aro good, wo recommend they be also granted »

eVFurts Vhich this subordinate Division of Freemasonrf is making in tke caase of ed- 
ucation, which at this juncture of our country's struggle for national existence' 
recommends itself with peculiar force as the one great and imperativa means of fillinj 
op the .educated racks, so deeply and broadly swept by the ravages of war, and of 
transmitting to posterity a. national appreciation of oar institutions; and cifil ami 
political liberties. 

As Tru.-iees of Ffanklinton Academy, we woald briefly submit for y«w conside- 
ration, the following, viz : This Seminary of learning is still under the direction ef 
£*i - cfe-ssor C4eorg9 W. Neal, srh» brings with an earnest devotion to tie causa of 
letters, a successful experience in teaching for fifteen years in Academic and C»l- 
iegiato Institutions of this State and the South; students have the important ad- 
Tartages offered ef acquiring an experimental knowledge of the Natural Science* 
hy Philosophies' and Chemical Apparatus, andjfree access i<s a library forreadirg 
purposes ; the number of pupils has averaged during this year about fifty, whiett 
w-juld hare been largely increased, if applicants fr«m Yir^nsia and this State c«uld 
b'ave obtained board on tjrrcs which they c^ald afford to pay ; tke hand of charity 
Las been extended to children whose parent" are unable to meet expenses ; th* 
system of discipline is of that parental, yet positive character, which may best de- 
velop the physical, mental and moral constitution of students, and make themaiefal 
and honorable mem'?er3of society. We cheerfully recotainsnd for the patronage uf 
brother Masons the educational advantages^here plfered. All of which rye woald sui»-

The following report from Bros. Martin and Green was 
read and referred to the committee on Jurisprudence : 

To the Meat Worthipful Grand Lodge of A.J?, and Accepted Ilasons of JV. C. : 

In a matter brought to the notice of your Grand body, at the last grand annual 
communication', bv Phcenix Eodge, No. 8, Fayetteville, N. C, wherein complaint 
was made that St. John's Lodge, No. 1, Wilmington, N. C, had entertained the 
petition of James 0. Bussy, for the degrees in masonry said Bussy being at the time 
a resident of that jurisdiction, and a rejected applicant to that Lodge, The under- 
signed haying been appointed to enquire into, and report the facts in the case to the 
suceeding grand annual communication, they beg leave 10 submit the following as 
the result of their enquiries : On the 30th day of July, 1863, Mr. James 0. Bussy 
filed his petition'in St. John's Lodge, No. 1, for the degrees ; the said petition being 
in the usual form, and as he represents, the words, "a resident of Wilmington," 
being overlooked, if he read the petition at all. In as much as the said Bussy had 
been born and raised in Wilmington, and had never, for any considerable length of 
time, been absent from the place, being at the time engaged in running a steamboat 
between Wilmington and Fayetteville, it did not occur to the Committee of Er, cjuiry, 
nor to any member of the Lodge to enquire whether or not he had changed his resi- 
dence. At the next regular meeting, Mr. Bussy was balloted for and elected, and on 
th» fir^t day of September, 1863. received the first degree. At that meeting, (and 
the W. M. thinks,) after the Lodge was closf d, he was informed for the first 
time that said Bussy had applied and been rejected at Phcenix Lodjre, when he re- 
plied that Phoenix Lodgn had no right to entertain his petition, inasmuch as be wan 
a resident of this jurisdiction. Still believing that such was the fact, he did not 
bring the subject before the Lodge, but on the first day of October, 1863, conferred 
upon him the second degree. Betore he applied for the third degree, the subject 
was brought to the attention of the Lodge, by the auction ef the Grand Lodge, and 
kis further progress suspended..

10 PROCEEDINGS OF TAB GKAND L0DG2 

Subsequent enquiries developed the fact that Mr. Bi?sy did consider himself * 
resident of Fayetteville at the time that he applied for ice degrees here. 

Your Committee feel assured that St. John's Lodge would not iatentionally tres- 
pass upon the right of jurisdiction of any other Lodge, or disregard an opinion ex- 
pressed through the ballots of a sister Lodge, as to the merits of an applicant for tns 
honors of masonry, and that she will cheerfully submit to the decision of your Grand- 
body in the premises. ARFRED MARTIN, 

JAMES TOY GREfcN.

GKAND MASTER'S ADDRESS. 
To Slit Mtmhcm of the Grand Lodge of North Carolina : 

Brethren : We mett to-night around the Altar where we have been accustesaed 
auouaily to congregate, to offer »p aaew our devotion to the great Author of the 
U-> ; r e re. 

We meet under circumstances which are peculiar *n<i interesting to overy Mac*a 
snd t very patriot of the country. 

A jreat revolution is upon us, and it not only boeoraes us as citizens, but as pa- 
triots an 1 Masons, to give our aid in the great struggle going on for liborty ar.a ia, 
iependence, 



OF NORTH CAROLINA.

g The ancient fraternity of Free and Accepted Masons, have nobly sent forth in de- 
lence of our country's rights, many of her most valiant sons, who have sacrificed 
their lives in defence of Liberty, and against the usurpation of a despot a,pd tyran', 
and will ever be ready to stand sids by side with the bravest of North Carolina's 
sons in vindicating our rights and our institutions. 

Masonry tenches its members that all po«er is delegated for the good, and not 
fer the injury of the people, and that when it is perverted in any -way from its oriji-. 
nal purpose, the compact is broken, and the right ought to be resumed; that resis- 
tance to power usurped is not merely a duty which man owes to himself, to hu 
neighbor and to society, but a duty which he owes to the Greaifct Am, in asserting 
and maintaining the exalted rank which he gave him in tho creation. This great 
principle, neither the rudeness ef ignorance, can, in the heat of strife, aor the ener- 
vation of refinement extinguish. It makes it base for a man to suffer when he ought 
to act, and, tending to preserve to him the original destinations of Providence, 
spurns at the arrogant assumptions of tyrants, and vindicates the independent quality 
of the race of which we are a part. 

The wise and vrell-informed Mason never fails to be the great frie»d and votary of 
liberty and justice. He will be ever ready to c-xert himself in th«ir defence, whore- 
erv*r they exist. It cannot be a matter of indifference to him when -his own liberty 
and that of other men, with who^e merits and capacities he is acquainted, are in- 
volved in the struggle or revolution to be made, but his attachment will b'e to the 
cause and to tho country. Yes,, tho true Mason identifies the honor of his beloved 
eountry with his own, and nothing more conduces t» the beauty and glory of one's 
country than the preservation against all enemies of both its civil and religious 
liberties. 

The world, and history, will never willingly let die tbo names of those noble 
patriots, who in every age of the world, have received upon thtir own br<.*sts the 
blows aimed by insolent enemies at the bos^M of their country. Forever will men 
remember Leonidas, who. with his thr?o hundred brave coscrades, held Thermcpylaj 
against the Persian myriads. Hannibal, who for Carthage, defied the power of 
Romo. CincinEStns, who left his plough SDd put on the purple and command 
Rome's armies. Washing'on, who was "first in war, first in peace, and first in the 
hea-ts of his ountrymen," and who is endeared to every true American, as tho 
Father of his c 'untry. Jackson, Rodes and others, who have fallen in defence of 
Southern lihert ; and independence, and thousands of patriots, who, in every age 
have held their lives to be the properly of their country, and of but small account 
■when compared with her interest and honor, her independence and nationality. 

He has already lived much too long who has survived the complete devastation 
and ruin of his country, and the citizen who can onjoylife after such an awful event, 
•Hse'vos fcot to have lived at all. Nor does he any more deserve to live, who can 
look contentedly upon such abuses that disgrace, cruelties that dishonor, scenes of 
misery, destitution and brutalization that disfigure his country, and makes no effort, 
er use - no remedy to prevent either. 

It is but seldom a country io at war, nor can every one be allowed the privilege of 
offering his heart to the enemy's bullets, but in the war now waging against the in- 
stitutions which are dear to every true Southern patriot, sll may come in for a sharo 
in the glory. Even the meanest soldier who fought at Bunker's Hill, King's Moun- 
tain, Saratoga' or elsewhere is a sharer in tnafelory of those saving days. The stmt 
,will be the case with those brave patriots who have fallen on the plains of Manassas, 
Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, and the battles ; round Richmond, ana elsewhere, 
durifig our great struggle for liber*.?, independence and self-preservation ; and within 
the household circle of those b-i.. r c patriots, the approbation of which approaches 
nearest to that of an approving conscience, will be looked upon as the true represen- 
tative of all his brother heroes, in his country's defenco, arid coaid tell such thrilling 
incidents of ih« different oampaigns and battles _as would make the tear glisten om 
the ehoek of his companion, and lighten his «;ii!dreos eyes with (paroling eagerness.- 
But should he unfortunately fall in the thickest of the battle, where every true 
patriot desires to be, and his place? becomes vacant by the fire sid* and at the tablo 
at home, that place becomes sacred, and he is often the theme of conversation in the 
long winter evenings, and his family is deemed fortunate, among its neighbors, be- 
cause it had a patriot and hero as one of its members, who has shed his blood, afai 
given his life as a willing sacrifice on the altar of his country. 

We, as Masons, my brethren, should remember )hat life's length is not measured 
by its minutes, its hours and day, but by that good which we have done therein for 



52 PROCEEDINGS OF THE GKA.ND LODGE 

our country and our fellows. An idle an d useless life is short, if it lasts » century or 
more, but that of Hannibal was long. The same may be said of many who hrue 
fell an the field of battle during our present revolution, though they have falle.i to 
the spring or at the meridian of life, they have not lived in v,un ; their memories 
will be cherished by those yet unborn, and their deeds of heroic valor will shine with 
resplendent beauty on the historian's page. 

The duty of Masons to the Government, is a subject I desire to call t» your at- 
tention for a few moments, for the reason, that I have recently received a 'lumber of 
communications, froinifche presiding officers of various subordinate Lodges, relative 
to a recent orgat/izatiraof a political character, which society, it is alleged by many, 
is treasonable in its tendency. How far this allegation is true, I am not prepar- 
ed to determine, having no knowledge in regard to it, except what I have gathered 
from the political journals of the day. 

It is a fact well known to every intelligent Mason, tha' Freemasonry never inter- 
feres with the ftffairsof Government, politics or religion, but leaves, every man's con- 
BcienceTree, no matter whether he be Jew, Christian or Mahsmedan. Hence it is, 
that Masons are to be found in every clime on the habitable gl -be, all obeying the 
same landmarks of the order. One ofthe most positive injunctions giv-.r/ the candidate 
for admission into our order, and one of the adaaoritions most frequently repeated 
is, " to fulfill all civil duties in the most distinguished manner and from the purest 
motives." Tbi3 is ose of the most positive and binding regulations. In the 
" ancient charges collected from old records," is the following : "No private piques 
or quarrels must be brought within the door of the Lodge, far Wrany quarrels 
about religion, or nations, or State policy. Being of all nations, tongues, indrede 
and languages, we are resolved against all politics, as what yet never condv,c-d to 
the welfare of the Lodge, nor ever will." Again, " Waoev«r would be a true 
Mason is to know that by the privileges of the Order, his obligations as a subject 
and citizen, will not be relaxed but enforced." 
He is to be a lover of peace, and obedient to the civil powers which give hi" pro- 
' tection, and are set over him where he resides or works. Nor can a real Crait.inan 
ever be concerned in conspiracies against the State, er be disrespectful to the Mat - 
Jatrate, b'eeaus* the welfare of his country is his most happy object No man cau 
be invested with the office of Master of a Lod:e until he has signified his^ssent to 
those charges and regulations, which clearly point out.the duty of that station and 
promise to submit and support them, " as Masters have done in all ages." Among 
other particulars are these: " You agree to be a peaceable subject, and cheerfully 
to conform to the laws of the country in which you reside." '• You promise not to 
be concerned in plots or conspiracies against Government, but patiently to submit 
to t' e decisions of the supreme legislature." " You agree to pay a proper respect 
to the civil Magistrate; to work diligently, live in credit, and act honorably with 
all men." Lastly, though of not less importance, every candidate, upon admission 
into the Fraternity, ia thus charged : " In tne State you ar« never to countenance 
disloyalty or rebellion, but yield yourself, and encourage in others, a cheerful con- 
lormity to the Government under which you live." 

These are some of the regulations handed down by our ancestors, which should 
guard every Mason against the naost remote possibility of beinj: suspected of disloy- 
alty. Masons, as \ftll as other men, are members of civil society; equally interested 
in preserving its order and peace. They owe their personal and their associate 
security to the laws, their protection, to the rigid enforcement of those laws. While 
the true Mason acts within his sphere, he is a true friend to his Government. That 
is the centre of his circle — the point where his affections are the warmest. His 
philanthrophy is by no means incompatible with patriotism ; and when he speaks of 
being free, arid ©f standing on a level with bis brethren, he advances nose?itiment in 
militancy, with social or political grades anil dignities. He admits, and isfimiliar 
with, the principle of- due subordination. He finds ns expediency in his own insti- 
tution, and he knows it is essential to good government andorder in the community. 
'* To be tree is one ofthe characteristics of his profession, but it is that steady free- 
dom which freedom feels and wisdom dictates." A freedom which ressen. "honor 
and virtue sanctions ; a freedom from the dominion of passion and the slavery of 
vice. The institution of Masonry is founded on love to God, and lore ,to man, 
whose chief glory is to reward in its numbers thoje peaceful virtues which Sre mo»t 
friendly to their own tranquility, and most beniticent #nd hippy to the woritl, 
which declares and repeats to every candidate, and in all its Lodges that it can 
never countenance anything contrary t« morals, religion 8r the Government; which 
expects and requires the highest reverence to the Suoreae Being, obedience to 
rulers, respect to sup«riors, kindness to equals and condescension to inferiors. Id 



OF NORTII CAROLINA. 13 

this character and conduct may each of us still be known and respected, continuing 
to " walk by the same rule iind mind the same thing." And may your Lodges bo 
beautiful as the temple, peaceful as its Ark, and sacred as its most holy place. May 
your ob^fltifins of pitt.y and praise be grateful as the incense, i'our lore warm aj 
its Dame, and your charity diffusive as its fragrance. May your hcart3 be pure as 
the altar, and your whole conduct acceptable as th^ offering; may the approbation 
of Bl< aven be jour eacouragemeat, and may He " who seech in secret, reward yea 
openly." 

In the present highly prosperous condition cf Masonry, there is great danger of the 
ancient landmaiksot the order being violated. Luring the past Masonic year, I 
hare received' a number of communications asking advice in regard to conferring 
the degrees upon a meritorious class of our citizens; apoa men who have spilt 
their bl«od in defence of their country, but who have beenfp unfortunate as to b« 
maimed, some by the loss of an arm, and some by the loss or a foot or a leg. How- 
ever much we may esteem this highly respectable class of our community, or 
sympathise with them iu their misfortunes, yet. without a direct violatien of an im- 
portant landmark of mascmy, they cannot be received into the order. 

Anderson's Constitution of Masrnry, and the old charges as established by him, 
«o far as v<e recollect, have never been altered er changed in a single particular, by 
any Grand Lodge, if we except the 'ate attempt of the M. W. Grand Lodfie of 
Bngland to strike out the word " born," in its connection with " free." .These old 
lairs contain all the ancient landmarks proper to be written. To these then, and 
to these only can we appeal for authority. 

We make'the fallowing extract trom the fourth of the old charges, as collected by 
Anderson to sustain the position we have, taken when written to upon this subj-tt: 
«'Onlv candidates may know that no master should take an apprentice unless ho 
has sufficient employmentfor hitn, and unless he be a perfect youth, having bo inaiia 
or default about his body that may render him incapable of learning the art of serv- 
ing his master's Lord and of being made a brother, then a fellow craft, in due time, 
soon after he hus served such a terta of years as the custom of the country directs 
and that he should be descended * if honest parents, that so, when otherwise qualified 
be in ay arrive to the honor of being a Warden, and then the Master of the Lodge 
the Grau»i Warden, and at length the Grand Master ol all the Lodges, according 
to his merit." 

We think any intelligent Mason must see the fitness of the ancient law abovrj 
quoted. Arid every Master presiding over a subordinate Lodge should rule, wheu 
petitions from this class of citizens are presented, that all who cannot make a 
Square, Level and Plumb, and all those who cannot fully exercise the three hutnaa 
scenes, cannot be received, because they could not be useful in practicing our rites. 
The law requires that a man shall not be so maimed, or deformed, that he cannot 
practice and teach the rituals of Masonry. How could the presiding officer of a 
Lodge teach our rituals, who had but one foot or one band 1 How could a deaf or 
blind man give instructions in Masonry? It must be obvious, they cannot practice 
our rituals, and hence cannot be admitted into the Fraternity, 

1 desire to call the attention of the presiding officers of the subordinate Lodges te 
the subject of non-Affiliated Masons. This has become an avil of such magnitude 
that 1 deem it my duty to call the attention of the craft in this jurisdiction to the 
subject. 

Demitted Masons enjoy many advantages over the members of the Lodge. Thsy 
are released from the operation of the bv-laws of the Lodge under whose jurisdic- 
tion they live, which requires a regular attendance upon the meetings of the Lodge, 
the payment of monthly dues, and from the burdensome task of spending night 
after night in doing the business and work of the Lodge. They are exempt also 
from a very unpleasantrduty, that of trying and punishing disorderly members. — 
They can, when they feel it their interest, visit the .Lodge, return when they please, 
and then call on the members to do them acts of favor and fraternal kindness, and 
frequently administer to their necessities. 

Frequently we will hear Masons say they hare not been in a Lodge for. a number 
of years, and then complain of being, to use a common phrase, "rusty." This sub- 
ject is of sufficient importance to be enquired into, and' a subject on which there 
should be but one opinion. 

Anciently all Mason3 were required to keep their names enrolled in some Lodge 
book, and if this great and fundamental law had not been grossly viol; ted, we 
•kould not see any non-A (filiated Masons. We again quote from Anderson's Con- 
stitution, to show the correctness of the position taken above ; 

" No set. or number of brethren, shall withdraw or separate themselvesfrom the 
«rdge in which tl ey were made, er were afterwards made member,! ;aUsS Ik* 



14 PROCEEDINGS Off THE GRAND LODGE 

Lodge become too intnerous, nor even then, without a dispensation from the Graa 
Master or Deputy, *nd when thus separated, *hey must immediately join themselves 
to such other Lodge that they shall like best, or else obtain the Grand Master's 
warrant to jein in forming a new Lodge, to be regularly constitutbd in good time." 
In calling the attention of the brethren to this subject, I am actuated by a desire 
to seo the ancient Constitution and landmarks of the order strictly adhered to.— 
Upon this depends, in a great measure, th,e perpetuity of the institution. His land 
marks are unchanged, and must be strictly observed, not only by the subordinate 
Ladges, but by each and every Grand Lodge. 

I hare grauted during the present Masonic year the following dispensations : One 
for a Lodge at Olin ; County Line Lodge, in Davie county ; Tabernacle Lodge, in 
Guilford ; Jonesville Lodge in Jonesville and one for a Lodge at Lenoir, Burke Co. 

I have granted thf following military dispensations : J. E. Avery Military Lodge, 
No. 1, feth N. C. Tfoops, Hoke's Brigade; Z. B Vance Lodge, No. 2, 40th Reg'*, 
Heavy Artillery, N. C. ; Vance Brothers' Lodge, No. 3, 43rd N. C. Troops, Daniel'* 
Brigade; Lodge in 3rd N. C. Cavalry, No. 4 : Chicamauga Lodge, 21st Regiment, 
No. 6; .f. C. McDowell Lodge, 1st N. C. Battalion, No. 6. 

All those petitioHS for dispensations were properly recommended, by the ancient 
working Lodges, and the Masonic character of the petitioners fully vouched for. 

To walk uprightly before God and before man, without deviating to the right or 
left, is the duty of every 'Mason, neither as an euthusiast, nor a persecutor, in re 
ligion, nor binding in the least towards innovation or infidelity. In civil govern- 
ment, firm in our allegiance, yet steadfast to our laws, liberties and constitution. In 
private life, giving up every selfish propensity, inclining neither to avarice tior in- 
justice, to malice nor revenge, to envy nor contempt, in our intercourse, with each 
other or with mankind, but as the master workman raises his column by the plum 
or perpendicular, so should every Mason conduct himself towards the werld and 
his brethren. To such oar affections by justice ai»d oar actions, by truth is t» 
wear a jewel that might ornament the bosom of the highest monarch on earth. Yet 
merely to act with justice aad truth is not all the Mason should attemp't. To love 
and approve are monuments i'a the soul of man which gives him pleasure, but to pity 
or sympathise, gives him heavenly sensations, and to relieve the distresses of a wor- 
thy brother or friend is divine. 

Hence charity has her existence. Sbe act from a coiisciouness of man's equality 
in nature, and knows the level on, which mortality was created in the beginning. 

Accordingly the Mason indulges sympathetic feelings from the affections of tfe» 
heart breathing love he has towards his brother. The result of this .human judg- 
ment induces us to weigh the necessities of our suffering fellow-creatures, and pur- 
suant thereto, we dispense our charities from pure affection. 

To be an upright Mason is still to add greater lustre to our character ; to do jus- 
tice to all, and to have charity, are excellent traits in human life, but to act uprightly 
with all men, but more especially with a brother Mason, gives a superlative 
degree of exce lence to a masonic character ; for in acting thus we not only lay 
examples in religious, but in our civil and moral deportiaent. In morality it is re- 
quired of us, not to err by injuring, betraying, or denouncing, but that we should 
aim to do good, in every capacity, or in every station in life, wherein the Great I 
Am has placed us. By such means Masonry should be willling to be proved ; and 
thereby testify to the world that the emblematical jewels which he wears, are ensign* 
only of the inward man or soul ; then he will stand with an approving conscience 
before high Heaven and before his fellow-man, purchasing or meriting felicity to 
himself as a professor of Masonry, and honor to the institution, of which he is a mem- 
ber. 

Xing Solomon, after the completion of the temple at Jerusalem, carried into it all 
the vsssels and iustruments, which was requisite for the service and worship- of 
Jehovah, according to the law of his people. So we ; as Masons, as workmen in th* 
great moral duties enjoined upon us and as servants of the great Architect of 
the universe, have constantly befpre us those M»s«nic emblems which remind us 
of what we are and what is required of us. Virtue is defined by moralists to be 
"that steadfast purpose and firm will of doing those things which nature has dic- 
tated to us, asthe best aad most salutery — a habit of the soul, by which mankind 
are inclined to do the things which areupwright and good, and avoid those that aro 
evil." In short, virtue is strict, moral honesty, and comprehends good principles. 
Prudence should characterize the conduct of every Mason; itiheuld be always 
present to the mind's eye, that his heart may be attentive to her dictates and stead- 
fast in her laws. Prudence is the path which loads to every degree of prosperity 
and is the rnlo of all virtue ; it is the channel from whence flows self- approbation for 
ever. She leads htr followers forth to worthy actions, aad as a guiding star 



OF NORTH CAROLINA. 15 

enlightens as thruugh the darksome and deary paths of this life. Fortitude is anoth- 
er characteristic, of a Mason, by which, in the midst of the greatest calamity or s'f 
the most pressing evils, he is enabled to do that which is agreeable to the dictates of 
art' right .reason. Temperance mast alsp be one of the Mason's most steadfast priu- 
eiples, it being the moderating or restraining of oar affections and passions, espeeir 
sJIy those of sobriet? and chastity, and Jve might include, under the various defini- 
tions given it by moralists, honesty, decency and discretion, weaknas3, charity and 
modesty. 

As a more immediate guide for a Mason, the Ledge is furnished with mles which are 
mrierriag, whereby he can form his conduct. The great Masonic Law Book is ever 
•pen before him when in the Lodge, that he may not say that through ignorance 
he erred. Having laid down in it all the great Architect 4f the world has dictated 
to msnkind as the mode ia which he would be served, and the path marked out In 
which they are to tread, to obtain his divine approbation. Whatever sacred pre- 
«epts have been gives ns, and whatever laws have been recorded by the prophets of 
old, the same are faithfully recorded and comprised ia the Bosk of" the Law of Ma- 
sonry. This great Law Book reveals the duties which the Grand Master of all, ex- 
acts from us. It being open to every eye and comprehensible fey every mind, thert- 
fiwe, who among ns that knows not the acceptable service. 

And now a parting word, to all my brethren. Let aae urge voa to hold fast te the 
tradition of our order; preserve immortal the landmarks which have been banded 
down to us pure and unimpaired. The great principles of the Masonic Institution 
are those of truth. They are principles allied to our sacred religion, and are ever- 
lasting. They existed when the foundation of the earth was laid, and formed an 
arch, more magnificsnt than the firmanent with all its glorious "inlay of stars." 

We have spoka of Masonry and endeavored to enforce on the minds of. oar breth- 
ren that Free Masonny is one of the most powerful agents of. virtue. Every step, 
every mystery of the erder, like "the things har<? to be understood in scripture," 
are potent witnesses of divine truth. From every dangerous path, and every dark, 
and rugged way, from every solemu vale we penetrate, and from every mysterioa* 
sign and word ol exhortation. We desire the mast lucid and brilliaat illustrations 
' of a glorious destiny^' Viewed as a moral sermon, it commands' our hghest esteeaa, 
and opens to our mental vision a sublime astronomy, where are seen stars and sua 
revolving about a great centre in theunseea depths of glory. About that firmament 
are, no doubt crystal waters. Some- spiritual Jordan, in which the righteous Maso» 
m»y be baptised anew, on their way to the heavenly city. In that beautiful laad ef 
light, the soul will find problems of moral science, which it will forever delight to 
study stud yet never solve. There it may be ever tailing up the sum of human hap- 
piness, and never finding an answer. How incomprehensible then is the mystery 
of man's eternal prsgrese. No plumb line can sound the depths of mercy, and n» 
compasses can describe immensity, within whose infinite triangle/which will con- 
tinue forever incemprehensible to the student of celestial geometry. 

The Masonic order stans\s a monument »f ancient ronown — a mas?ive structure; 
sapported by wisdom, strength and beauty. But if we wish to enjoy real satisfac- 
tion in viewing the splendid edifice, we must "go down to its very foundaiion." 
We must cross the gulf of time, and go back to the age ia which its " stones were 
known, and visit the graves of the Masters whose hands fashioned and heaved thera 
iato their places." Let us often think upan the mysterious and solemn ties which 
unite us as a band of friends and brothers, and pledge anew our vows of holy broth- 
erhood, and ever walk uprightly before God and man. 

Brothers, may yeu discharge all your Masonic duties with fidelity and aoner ; 
that when the events of time shall be ended and the retributions of eternity begia ; 
when the morning stars shall again sing together, and the sons of God shot for 
loy, may each of you join the animating choras, and share the glorious. triumph. 
Then you shall be deemed worthy to enter the doors of the celestial temple to e« 
adorned with jewels beautiful with immortality, and advanced to glories, incoxn- 
narably more resplendaat than any here below.

by Thomas Smith Webb ;

And whereas, this action, at the close of the communication, when delegates from 
but thirteen Lodges were present, has failed to bind the subordinate Lodges; since 
most of them continue to attest, by use, their approval of Stevenson's work ; and 
whereas, this change, hasty and ill-advised, was affected counter to known wishes of 
a large majoTity of the delegates to that communication, and mainly through the 
shre d management of one F. N. Porter, accredited representative near this Grand 
Lodge, from the Grand Lodge of New Hampshire, who being a pedlar of Rob Mor- 
ris' books, on the so-called Prestonian System, &c, wtis peculiarly and pecuniarily 
interested in foisting said work on this Grand Lodge, Therefore, in justice to Ben. 
Stevenson, and to secure entire uniformity of work for the good of the craft 

Resolved, That said resolution adopted on Friday evening, December 7th, 1860, is 
hereby rescinded, and the resolution of December, 5846, restored to full force and 
effect. WM. G. HILL. 

The Committee on unfinished business made the annexed 
report which was adopted » 

To the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Nortji Carolina: 

The Committee of unfinished business of the Grand Lodge, respectfully 
report that they have examined the proceedings of the Communication, 
and find on page 17, in the report of the Committee on Masonic juris- 
prudence, the following s . 

" Upon the cnse which has been reported to your Committee, as having 
occurred between Phoenix Lodge, No. 8, and St. John's Lodge, No. 1, it 
has been thought advisable to make no, report to this Grand Communica- 
tion, and request the Most Worshipful Grand Master to appoint a Com- 
mittee, whose duty it shall be to examine the testimony — each Lodge being 
represented — and report to the next Grand Lodge. 

They also find on page*18, the lollowing: 

" The Grand Master appointed brothers Alfred Martin and J. F. Green, 
as the Committee to investigate the complaint of Phoenix Lodge, No. 8, 
against St. John's Lodge, No. 1, as recommended by the Committee on 
Masonic Jurisprudence." 

It is evident that the report of this Committee, is- order to be presented 
to this present Grand Communication. 

They find nothing else in the proceedings of the last Grand Communi«a- 
tion calling for their notice, unless some report is to be expected at this 
Communication from the Committee on St. John's College. See page — , 
of the Proceedings, all which is respectfully submitted.

T. M. GARDNER, I Committee. 

J. W. WELLONS, j 

The annexed report, submitted by Bro. Colton, was read 
and adopted : 

Your Committee has had iD consideration the subject matter of the 
communication from Phoenix Lodge, No. 8, and beg leave to report : 

That they deem it unwise that there should be among us so many unaf- 
filiated Masons, the more especially when they desire to connect themselves 
with Lodges and become active and useful. Many of these Masons are"' 
refugees from their former homes, and, owing to the peculiar character of 
of their departure thence were unable to obtain demits. It is now utterly 



OF NOBTH CAROLINA* 19 

impossible for them to obtain such demits even it Lodges are* working in 
the Location of their former homes. 

We quote a resolution of the Grand Lodge, adopted 5551, as follows : 
Now, is a fact well known and generally conceded, that common law does 
not intend or desire to cremand from any one the accomplishment of an 
impossibility. The ear and eye of the Grand Master is the great beacon of 
Light to which every true Mason looks. Hence, if the Grand Master, 
after a careful survey of all the facts, deems it impossible for any brother 
to obtain a demit, your Committee submits that it is unmasonic that such 
Mason should longer be kept from the rights and benefits of a true member 
of the Lodge nearest where he now resides. Further, your Committee ven- 
ture to express the opinion t^at it is impossible for any Mason, formerly a 
resident of any Northern State, or of any city, town or section now, and 
■"ikely for some time to be, in the hands of the enemy, to obtain a demit; 
hence, that such -Lodge is to him and his brother Masons of this Grand 
Lodge dormant ; and therefore, for the benefit of all such, your Committee, 
beg leave to present the following: 

Resolved, That all unaffiliated Masons, refugees from their former homes— which 
former homes are in the hands of the enemy— may, by application to the Grand 
Master, and bis certifying that, in his opinion, it is impossible for them to obtain 
demits, by showing evidence of true Masonic conduct, may become active and affili- 
ated Masons in the Lodge where they are now nearest resident by paying the usual 
fees, and upon showing evidence satisfactory to said Lodge, shall be entitled to all 
the honors and titles they may have heretofore enjoyed.

Brother York submitted the following preamble and reso- 
lution, which were adopted : 

Whereas, This Grand Lodge by a resolution of 1861, recommended the G. M. to 
issue dispensations to Military Lodges, and whereas the question of jurisdiction has 
been admitted ; therefore, be it 

Begolved 1st, That this Grand Lodg» claim Masonic Jurisdiction over all troops 
belonging to the State of North Carolina, wherever they may be. 

Ketolved 2d, That no Military Lodge under the jurisdiction of this Grand Lodge 
shall have the power to confer the degrees upon any person other than such as by the 
laws of Noith Carolina are entitled to vote in the State elections held in the aimy. * 

The Report of the QominUtee on Expulsions and Suspen- 
sions read and adopted. 

The Committee on Suspensions and Expulsions beg leave to submit the 
following Report: 

1st. In the caee of W. J. Jones, Granite Lodsre, No. 191, we recommend 
that he be restored to membership, but be reprimanded in open Lodge. 
He has been under suspension for more than one year, and we do not think 
the offence requires an extension of the punishment. 

2d. We recommend that the action of Pleasant Hill Lodge, No. 168, in 
the case of G. M. Gable, be confirmed. 

3d. In the cage of Hiram Hunter, Blackmer Lodge, No. 170, we think the 
sentence of the Lodge too severe, it being expulsion, and therefore recom- 
mend that the action of the Lodge be reversed, and that he be suspended 
for one year, at the end of which time he be reprimanded in open Lodge. 

4th. We recommend that the action of Dan River Lodge, No. 129. in the 
case of David Matthews, be reversed, and he be suspended for six months. 

5th. We recommend that the proceedings of Mocksville Lodge, No. 134, 
in the cases of W Stonestreet and E. M. Godby, be returned tor total in- 
formality of proceedings. 

6th. In the case of W. . ..noccly, George Washington Lodge, No. 174, 
and N. R. W;itkins and F. I Hartsfield, Rolesville Lodge, No. 158, we 
recommend that these cases be referred back to snid Lod,: s for informality, 
and that they be instructed to inquire whether 'bese biothers have been 
guilty of unmasonic conduct?.. These parties were by their respective 
Lodges expelled for desertion from the army win'' h, in the opinion of the 
Committee, is a political, and not a masonic offeue. While we as citizens, 
express our entire condemnation of- desertion. si:ni > ^iore such conduct, 
whether by masons or the profane, we would rccomoiei.u that for thef'ture, 
subordinate Lodges do not attempt to deal with their members on the 
simple charge of dt -t nion, '* Although all the most ancient and univer- 
sally received precepts of the ins itution inculcate obedience to the civil 
powers, and strictly forbid any mingling in plots or conspiracies against 
the peace and wdlfare of the nation yet no offence against the State, 
which is simply political in its character, can be noticed by a Lodge." 
Once introduce this subject into the Lodges, and open the door for 
the introduction of politics and religion, subjects which are stringently 
forbidde i to be introduced into Masonry, and we undermine the very 
foundation of our time-honored institution. 

All of which is respect'ully submitted.

22 PROCEEDINGS OF THE GRAND LODGE 

Bro. Salinas presented the annexed resolution, which was 
adopted : 

Resolved, That authority be granted to Saint John's Lodge, No. 1, to confer the 
Master's degree on Bro. J. 0. Boorg. 

The Keport on the Grand Master's Communication was 
read and adopted. 

Tonr Committee on the Grand Master's Address beg leave to report: 

That the pride and satisfaction of this Graud Lodge must be aroused by 
the prosperous condition of Masonry, which appears from the Grand Master's 
Address upon the state of the Order, and that they trust it will continue to 
grow, not only in numbers, but in perfection of work and purity of morals. 

That the Grand Master's remarks urging Masons not to identify them- 
selves as Masons, or in their Lodges, with any secret political order which 
has been, or may be introduced into this country, are worthy of our most 
careful attention. 

That the subject of non-affiliated Masons is one which merits our careful 
attention, and some action of this Grand Lodge- should be taken in regard 
to the number of nonaffiliated Masons who crowd our towns, do not pay 
anything for the support of Masonry, and are ever ready to display them- 
selves on public occasions, and when traveling it may be of benefit to them. 

The official acts of the Most Worshipful Grand Master meet our approval, 
and the mild and, impartial manuer with which he has dispensed the duties 
of his office is worthy our highest praise. 

We entirely concur with the Grand Master in the eloquent manner with 
which he*has portrayed the beauties and benefits of Masonry. 

In parting from him, we tender to him. for you, many years of usefulness, 
and that each recurring year may find him among us in genial broiherhood.

24: PROCEEDINGS OF THE GRAND LODGE 

PRESENTATION OF THE MEDAL TO WM. T. BAIN, G. SEC. 

Address of Bro. Mackey, Grand Secretary of South-Caro- 
lina: 

My Dear Brother : — In a Masonic experience not, it is true, as long as 
yours, and yet sufficiently long to bave_ afforded me many pleasing remin- 
iscences, I know of none which will, in future years be more grateful to 
my memory than the transaction in which, by the kind partiality of your 
Grand Lodge, I have this evening been made an actor. Holding in my 
own jurisdiction an official position, similar to that which for many years 
you have so faithfully exercised in yours, I almost feel that I am, in some 
sort, the participator in the honor which is now bestowed upon you. It 
seems appropriate that the GraDd Secretary of one State should be selected 
as the agent to express the sentiments of respect entertained by his breth- 
ren for the Grand Secretary of another, and a sister jurisdiction. I, at 
least, am able to appreciate the nature of the labors which, in your official 
character, devolve upon you— the industry aud energy which are required 
for the faithful discharge of those labors — and the conduct which you must 
have pursued to have' grained that respect and esteem, the evidence of which 
is this evening demonstrated. 

Yours, my brother, must have been a happy life. For nearly a quarter 
of a century, the Mason* of North Carolina have come up together at stated 
periods to renew their vows around our sacred altar — to legislate for (he 
government of the order in then" native juris'dietion — and to adopt those 
measures which should be conducive to the prosperity and healthy exten- 
sion of our beloved institution. And at each anniversary they have brought 
with them the renewal ©f their respect and esteem for you as their Grand 
Secretary, and by repeated, unanimous, re-elections have testified their 
persocai affection for you as a man, and their grateful sense of your fidelity 
as an officer. This long continued demonstration of their confidence is 
son ; i'. j; of which you may well be proud. 

Won'.! the illustrious architect of the metropolitan cathedral of England 
had been gathered to his last resting place, no splendid, obelisk or stately 
urn was ereeted to point out the situation of his grave ; but buried in the 
very centre of St. Pauls, that gorgeous pile which his skill and genius had 
erected, a plain marble slab alone indicated his tomb, but on its surface 
was inscribed these memorable words, "If you would behold his monument, 
look around you." 

&o you, too, need no written certificate of your character or of your ser- 
vice. Should any stranger, unacquainted with the industry, energy and 
fidelity with which, for -o lo.ng a period, you have discharged the duties of 
your responsible and laborious office, ask for soipe evidence of your worth 
you too might refer to the r spect and esteem which your purity of life has 
won.auci, pointing to these brethren who now, with warm hearts and kindly 
glanc 8, are gazing on your venerable form, might proudly say, " If you- 
Want the testimony of my integrity and my usefulness look around you." 

The medal which the Grand Lodge of North Carolina has ordered to be 
presented to you contains this significant legend: "We love those who 
love us : we honor those who have honored us." Yes, venerable brother 
for mor£ than a quarter of a century, you have demonstrated by your 
worus and actions, a warm attachment to our sacred institution, and untir- 



OF NORTH CAROLINA. 25 

ing devotion to its welfare. And now the sons of those whom you first met 
in our hallowed courts, come up •here this evening to return, with grateful 
feelings, a portion of that love which you lavished on their sires. # And the 
Grand Lodge whom you have honored by the long and faithful discharge of 
one of the most important offices in its gift, now proclaims by this act in 
which we are engaged, how highly it honors and esteems the honest man, 
the upright Mason, and the faithful officer. The bread cast upon the 
waters, after many days has returned. 

In the name and in behalf of the Grand Lodge of North-Carolina, and 
the craft, which it represents, I present to you this medal as an offering of 
affection. May you long wear it with health, and intellect, aod usefulness 
unimpaired; and when, in the expressive symbolism of our Order, you shall 
in the pilgrimage of life have passed the Southern and Western gates, un- 
conqnered by the temptations which are there, you shall at length have 
leached the Eastern gate, :iud there been compelled to yield to the inexor- 
able foe of our race, may death find you like " the widow 1 s son" not unpre- 
pared for.the great change which will await you. But may your disem- 
bodied spirit, called by the Omnific Word of the Grand Waster of the uni- 
verse, from the grave to. which weeping brethren shall have consigned you, 
be permitted to unite with the true and faithful who have gone before you 

in the eternal refreshments of the Celestial Lodge. 
» 

Tp which Brother ¥m. T. Bain, Grand Secretary, replied 
as follows : 

My Dear Brother Macket: I should certainly be guilty of an act of 
unpardonable ingratitude, if I were to refrain Irom expressing the feelings 
of my heart in accepting this beautiful and valuable token of the friendship 
and fraternal regard which my brethren of the Grand Lodge of my beloved 
State have shown towards me. 

To say that I am thankful only, would be but a poor return for this 
unmistakable evidence of their kind and generous failings. Yes, my 
brother, I can truly say that the gratitude I feel will be cherished in my 
bosom to the latest period of my life, to remind me of "the many and mul^i- 
.plied favors and acts of kindness received at their hands. If I were to say 
that I have committed no errors in discharging the duties of my office, I 
might justly be accused of.vanity and presumption, but I flatter myself 
with the pleasing reflection that my brethren will ascribe those errors to 
the imperfections ofmy nature, and not from any disposition on mv part to 
shrink from the performance of those duties connected with the office of 
Grand Secretary. 

For more than forty years I have had the honor of a connection with the 
Masonic Fraternity, and during that long period of time, I have endeavored 
to promote its interest and to act the part of a useful and acceptable mem- 
ber ; and here, I hope, I may be indulged in submitting a few brief remarks 
on some of the excellent tenets of our'Order. 

Masonry may with much propriety be regarded as a moral institution, 
having among other objects a calm and dispassionate inquiry into the origin 
of man, his destiny on earth and his future state, that it may be ascertained 
as far as practicable, what he owes to hi* Creator, to society and himself. 

Man was not placed on earth to live for himself alone. 

The Author of existence has imposed* imperative duties upon us, and we 
are not obeying the moral law if we fail to discharge those duties faithfully 
under all circumstances of life. 



26 PROCEEDINGS OF THE GEAND LODGE 

The cold headed misanthrope may presumptuously inquire what essential 
duties are made obligatory on us to discharge? 

Christianity will readily answer the question by loudly calling upon us to 
feed the hungry, close the naked and to infuse comfort and consolation into 
the hearts of the afflicted and distressed ; and Masonry at all times prompts 
ns to act the Samaritan's part when objects of our pity and commiseration 
present themselves claiming our benevolence and charity. 

When he is inducted into the mysteries of Masonry, the candidate will 
readily discover without much effort of the mind, that its principles are 
closely connected with Christianity. Heat once perceives that the degrees 
h,e has taken are founded upon that Book which the good and true Mason 
values above all others, and if he conforms to the requirements it imposes, 
he cannot fail to act the good Mason's part and receive the plaudits t>f 
Heaven. 

Masonry may be said to be a language which is understood and spoken 
by the craft wherever dispersed, and it forms a common medium of corns 
munication among our brethren of all nations and tongues. In a strange 
land the good and true Mason finds, without much difficulty, a home in the 
hearts and houses of his brethren ; and it he is in want, his wanta are 
cheerfully supplied, and his heurt is made to rejoice, that, a'though a 
stranger and far from home and friends, he is among those who claim him 
as a brother of the mystic tie. 

It cannot be denied that in many ages of the world's existence, kings and 
princes, with others high in rank and power, have arrayed themselves 
against our beloved Order, but their wicked and malicious efforts to injure 
and destroy our usefulness, have fallen harmless at our feet ; and we appear 
on the world's wide stage, clothed in all the majesty of our strength, power 
and influence. It may be also declared that the shafts of malice and 
vituperation have been hurled at our very viials, to impair our energies and 
defeat our plans, to disperse Chris' ian and Masonic principles among the 
nations of the earth; but with much pleasure and gratification we can say, 
that a period in our history has arrived when the tongue of slander and 
malice has been silenced, and we now stand on firmer and more substantial 
ground than we have occupied for many centuries past. 

In closing these imperfect remarks, I beg to, be permitted to return my 
sincere thanks and grateful acknowledgements to you, my much esteemed 
brother, for the very kind and flattering manner in which you have been 
pleased to present this memorial of the undiminished friendship of those 
much honored and beloved ones with whom I have spent many happy and 
pleasant hours in by gone days. May prosperity and happiness accompany 
you and them through life ; and when you shall be summoned to exchange 
time and all earthly things, (or a long and never ending eternity, may you 
all be received into the Gkand Lodge above, where the Supreme Architect 
of the universe presides in all His glory and splendor, there to enjoy unin- 
terrupted happiness and peace in thje haven of eternal repose.

ERRATA. 

Oh page 5, for " the following committee," read " the follow- 
ing committees were appointed." 

On the same page, for " ]ML Felter," read " M.jFetter;" and 
on page 10, the same error appears in this brother's name. 

On page 7* Lebanon Lodge is numbered " 209," it should 
have been "207." 

Jeffersonville Lodge, on page 8, is superfluous. It was in- 
serted through mistake after the committee on Charters and 
Dispensation had made their second report. No Lodge of 
t&at name was chartered.
